In the Realization Process, the radical openness of nondual realization is based on deep contact with the internal space of one’s body and access to the “wisdom channel” in the subtle core of the body. We therefore uncover a qualitative, authentic experience of ourselves as individuals at the same time as we transcend our individuality. When two people attune to nondual awareness together, they experience mutual transparency: a single expanse of awareness pervading them both as a unity. They also experience resonant connection between the essential aspects of their being, such as intelligence, love, and physical sensation.
Most approaches to nonduality focus on breaking through fixed conceptual patterns. However, the fixations that obscure nonduality are not just conceptual. There are also rigid holding patterns throughout one’s body, limiting our capacity for emotional responsiveness and physical sensation. The subtle core of the body is disentangled from these rigidities. When we access it, we can let go of our fixed patterns of self and other, so that they actually dissolve. Then we are open to the present moment, effortlessly, throughout our whole body.
This training focuses on the Meditation aspect of Realization Process. Participants will learn how to help people overcome specific obstacles to nondual realization, and how to accelerate results in meditation for both beginning and advanced students. Along with the Realization Process attunement exercises, various forms of meditation, such as resting in nonduality, mindfulness, absorption, deity visualization, and one-pointed concentration will be taught, with discussion of their applications to personal and spiritual issues.
The training is also an opportunity to deepen your own nondual realization, through intensive practice. The Realization Process exercises will be combined with periods of sitting, standing and walking meditation for cultivating stable nondual realization, subtle breath, subtle perception, and openness throughout the whole body.
